Brownies with Cookies
Brownie Troop Delivers Cookies to Saint Raphael’s Hamden Cancer Center
Hamden Brownie Troup No. 60869 has donated more than 50 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to patients and staff at the Hospital of Saint Raphael’s Father Michael J. McGivney Cancer Center - Hamden Campus, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
The cookies were collected as part of the troop’s annual Gift of Caring effort to promote community service and were delivered to the Cancer Center on March 26.
The Brownies wanted to help children in the hospital but discovered that dietary restrictions prevented most cookie gifts, said Troop Leader Shannon McKeon. Saint Raphael’s Hamden Cancer Center, however, welcomed the cookie donation to provide snacks to patients and family members.
The Father Michael J. McGivney Cancer Center - Hamden Campus, at 2080 Whitney Ave., is a 12,585-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that is conveniently located for patients in the Hamden-North Haven-Cheshire area and points north and east. The Hospital of Saint Raphael opened the facility in May 2009.
